twitter bird

Do you know how many companies already use Twitter? One of my twitter friend’s links led me to this eye opening list from fluentsimplicity…WOW that’s alot. Thanks guys! My favourites are the t twitters from executives as they, quite often, have pretty interesting things about how business and life relates together. Take a look at the list and hope you will find some twitters you like!

    I hardly leave a response, however after reading through a few of the remarks on this page Companies using Twitter, Unleash the Power of Tweets!. I actually do have a few questions for you if you do not mind. Is it only me or do a few of these responses look like they are written by brain dead visitors? :-P And, if you are posting on other online social sites, I would like to follow you. Could you post a list of all of all your shared sites like your twitter feed, Facebook page or linkedin profile?
